Trying to get some of these awesome women to give our viewers a demonstration in self-defence was a little unpractical (not to mention expensive), so we gathered together the femme fatales currently gracing M-Net Movies instead. But first, some tips on self defence. Cue heels, models aaand... action!
It’s no fun being the damsel in distress, especially not with the threat of vampires, zombies and the evil villains from James Bond movies lurking about. Movies have taught us that when you want something done right, it’s best to send in a woman to sort out the man who’s meant to be doing the job. And put paid to the bad guys in the process too.

It only makes sense for there to be a super-heroine next to a superhero. Even Batman needed a muse in the form of

Nothing enhances espionage better than a mysterious woman, like

And let’s not forget that FBI Agent Gracie Hart, in
Fri 9 Nov at 21:00 on M-Net Movies Comedy
), knows all about self-defence. She redefines the word makeover by transforming into a beauty queen, and while other contestants sing and juggle to show off their talent, Gracie performs a series of self-defence 101 techniques that prove to be surprisingly useful.
